Dreamin’ and Screamin’

August 1st, 2008

Cooper is an awesome sleeper.   If I let him nurse all he wants in the evening, he’ll snooze most of the night away.   Last night I got 7 and a half hours out of him!   I feel like a new woman after a sleep that good.

Ah, but get that kid in a car seat and all hell breaks loose.   He SCREAMS in the car.   Here, there, everywhere.   Morning, noon, night.   Music up, music down, he screams till Kenny and my face frowns.   I’m about ready to not leave the house until he can drive himself.

As for the dermatitis, between washing his face in Selsun Blue twice a week and then dabbing breast milk on a couple times a day, it’s almost cleared up!   Thanks for the suggestions from you all!!  

What else?   Kenny is hanging in there.. if anything, he’s gone from one of the sweetest boys in the world to The Sweetest Boy on Earth.   He is so loving to Cooper and so sweet and attentive to me.   Of course, he is still WILD as well – bouncing off the walls,  most specifically when I am nursing and can’t catch him.     He also waits until I start nursing Cooper to say, “Mommy I want to poop in the potty!”   For some reason, he can’t get his pull-up down himself, so it’s either drop everything (I don’t actually drop Cooper, I try to set him down somewhere safe!) or thwart his efforts by making him wait.  

Finally Dudley, who obviously is getting very little of his share of attention, decided to go and get fleas to bring home and infest our house.   Casey is out on the back deck right now spraying down couch pillows and chairs with hopefully-not-too-toxic flea killer, and the exterminator comes Monday.   Yee haw.

 Pictures to come soon, I promise!!

    Seven hours?! It took us six months to get to that. You’re definitely doing something right.

    Yay for Cooper! Well… the fleas are being passed around… hopefully we are done with them… although we did take Rusty over to moms and I looked at Madison and she had them again… ARGH!!! 🙄 😆 😆 😆

    Oh isnt that the GREATEST feeling when you wake up and it is like 6:30 IN THE MORNING and you went to bed at like 10 or 11 AT NIGHT!! AHHH, the wonderful feelings of your baby sleeping the whole night! Elliana has done it about 3 nights but now is off of that lovely sleeping time and back to waking up a couple times…once because she is hungry and the again because she poops and it wakes her and us up! WOW, it is so funny that such a tiny little baby can make that much noise or have that much gas! She is sleeping now as she was up all day, so I am taking some time to check out your website….so great! you are a wonderful writer and such a fun and entertaining family! Love it! 😀
